Ride-on/in Artoo


Hankering after ones youth is a useless pursuit, yet one hard not to participate in when something like this comes along. The realese of Star Wars in 1977 was accompanied by some school class compadres buying steel bins and sticking a few stickers on them for an R2D2 effect, but look at this, lucky blighters (under a certian age and weight). Sit inside the wheel powered-Artoo and guide yourself around, not desert terrain., more like wooden floors or perfectly even tarmacadam and press a few buttons for R2D2 sound FX and the Star Wars theme. It’ll be out pre-xmas, Amazon have a pre-order and it’s £200 If you’ve the cash to splash we say grab a Princess Leia cutout too HERE
